Crompton Greaves Company provided state-of-the-art medical equipment worth over Rs. 1 crore to the pediatric ward of Sayaji Hospital under CSR
Will speed up the life saving intensive treatment of newborns, Neo Natal Care Unit here provides intensive care to about 4500 newborns annually
Dr. Sheila Iyer said, a state-of-the-art Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit is working with this department provides intensive care to about 4500 newborns annually. Crompton Greaves, a reputed corporate company, has recently provided state-of-the-art medical equipments worth over Rs. 1 crore which will be very useful in transformation and modernisation of this unit.
She said that the company already donated hemodialysis unit for pediatric patients suffering from serious kidney diseases and in need of dialysis. The unit started on the very first day of Navratri.
Patients who were being treated in the intensive care unit in critical condition had to be moved to another location for necessary sonography. This problem has been solved with the help of portable ultrasound-2d echo machine equipped with multiple probes. With this the patients admitted in the neo natal intensive care can undergo sonography on their bed. The machine is worth more than Rs 18 lakh.
Often babies born in a full month cannot cry due to suffocation and lack oxygen. The company has provided all the necessary accessories for the life-saving treatment of such newborns with a useful body cooling system. Costing an estimated Rs 15 lakh, the system will make neonatal treatment more effective.
In addition, the department has been provided with two high-end ventilators worth Rs 35 lakh and a high frequency oscillator ventilator worth Rs 27 lakh. This has made Sayaji Hospital's pediatrics department, perhaps the first department in Gujarat to have such a facility. The life-saving charities of the company under CSR have brought much needed renovation to the pediatric department.
